A pair of very rare, white giraffes in Kenya have been photographed for the first time. There is no doubt that they are a sight to behold.
The video below shows a mother and child who both have Leucism, a genetic condition that stops them from having pigment. They are walking around the Ishaqbini Hirola Conservancy.
There were some rumors about the presence of the giraffes in the area. Before that, it took a few months for the staff to be able to get a picture of the moment.
Even though these giraffes and other animals with leucism can’t make their traditional colors, they don’t have any genetic disadvantages to their survival.
It’s said that more than half of all giraffes don’t live past six months of age, but that’s not true. All but a few of them are hunted by big cats like the lion and the hyena.
After the rare footage went viral, people said they were worried that knowing where they were could encourage people to hunt them.
